strnngc friendship between a sleek
rabbit nnd tiny black kitten has
sprung up In the home here of
George J. St. Lawrence
Just how the small rabbit found
Its way to the St. L'iwroncc home.
Is n mystery. It -was found In the
yurd nnd later brought into the
house where the kitten Immedi-
ately adopted It as a playmate.
Day In and day out Mrs. l.-iw-
rence says tho xilr arc togethei
They are lnso(ianib!e. They cat to-
gether but different foods They
sleep near one another and rurcly
engage In fisticuffs.
"Sometimes however." Mra. Si.
L'lwrcncc said "the kitten becomes
irritated ut Its long-eared friend
nnd slams It to the floor with a
sweep of Its paws.
'The bunny however takes the
slaps good-naturedly ond every-
thing turns out all right when the
kitten licks the rabbit's nose."
Mrs. St. Lawrence nays the kitten
wa grlef-trlcken one entire day
when the rabbit disappeared from
"Jt literally hunted for Its friend
under the beds ond everywhere."
The friendship returned how-
ever when the bunny came home
Into that night.
